The win marks the sixteenth WSOP title for Hellmuth, whose incredible WSOP career includes 157 cashes and a breakout victory in the 1989 Main Event that made him the youngest champion in history at the time.

But the victory comes at a time when many in the poker world have condemned Hellmuth's behavior at the tables last week. 

Hellmuth went off at this week's Event #19: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship.

"I think I'm going to burn this f***ing place down if I don't win this f***ing tournament," he said prior to losing out to Anthony Zinno as part of a nearly 15-minute long rant.

Americas Cardroom CEO Phil Nagy was quick to address the lack of accountability following Hellmuth's win.

He tweeted:

Hellmuth was far more composed and gracious after his weekend victory.

"What did I tell you, honey? I've always wanted a deuce-to-seven bracelet," Hellmuth said to his wife Katherine shortly after shaking Jake Schwartz's hand.

She was by his side for the big win after missing out on two of his final table runs earlier in the series.

"My wife has been at a spa for two weeks, so she missed my tirade and two of my final tables. She never misses my final tables because we have an agreement. We have been married for 31 years and she has to be at all my final tables. But she was at a health spa and she deserves a break."
